Researchers at Stryker Berchtold, a medical technologies and research company, are on the cutting edge of brain mapping research and are bringing that research to you! Their aim is to figure out which parts of the brain give us certain abilities, called localization of function, and how these parts of the brain are connected. For example, what part of our brain enables us to see the color green, interpret a joke as funny or remember what we ate for breakfast? Scientists use imaging to watch the brain work on various tasks to answer these questions and at Otronicon you can interact with this technology yourself.
